The menopause is still a taboo topic and a source of uncertainty and embarrassment for many women. In Managing Hot Flushes and Night Sweats Myra Hunter and Melanie Smith aim to provide women with up to date and balanced information about menopause and a self-help guide to reduce the impact of hot flushes and night sweats in just four weeks.

This book sets out an interactive four-week programme using cognitive behavioural therapy, with exercises and worksheets designed to enable women to develop strategies for managing menopausal symptoms. This approach is based on the authors' research and has been shown to be effective in recent clinical research trials. This guide can help you to:

Understand the biological as well as the psychological and cultural influences on menopause

Understand and manage hot flushes in social situations

Learn to modify triggers and use paced breathing to reduce the impact of hot flushes

Reduce stress and improve well-being

Develop strategies to help if night sweats disturb your sleep

With a companion audio exercise and downloadable resources available online, Managing Hot Flushes and Night Sweats offers a complete and effective framework to approach menopause with confidence and to manage symptoms without the use of medication. The book is ideal for women approaching or going through the menopause, for women having menopausal symptoms following treatment for breast cancer, for their friends and relatives, and healthcare professionals working with women.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Professor Hunter and Dr Smith provide a truly accessible and informative account of current knowledge relating to the menopause and its implications. The self-help programme is eminently doable. At every point the exercises are fully explained and there are illustrations with quotes from women from a range of different circumstances. This book is written by women for women... please read on, as your menopausal experiences will certainly seem different on your completion of this book." Professor Pauline Slade, University of Liverpool, from the foreword.

"I would say that it's been excellent for me. I initially thought that I could do absolutely nothing to help myself with menopausal symptoms.... going through the book and realizing that I could control things has been excellent for me.....I hardly have any hot flushes now." Angela.
